This driver for the Intel 82371SB PCI to USB Universal Host Controller Driver is required for many USB disk drive devices like the Iomega Zip drives and other devices. The driver does support up to Windows XP and Server 2003 but later operating systems should not need to have a driver installed as it is included. Install this driver with extreme caution as it is a base system driver. As always backup your data before installation.
Iomega Zip drives were the choice for expanded external storage in the 90’s and early 2000 because alternatives were 1.44MB floppy disks that were becoming a problem due to the nature of files and multimedia need much more space. CD writers were available at the time but were slow and un-reliable at times. Also Zip drives were much cheaper to purchase, however the disks for the Zip drivers were expensive compared to CDRW discs. Storage is 100MB, 250MB & 750MB hence the 3 models that have each number. New models are backwards compatible with smaller size disks.
This is a driver pack (Forceware) for older versions of Windows which great for Retro gamers that want to play on original hardware and Operating Systems to get a genuine experience. When running games from the late 90's and early 2000's there are many glitches when running them on Windows Vista onwards. Some older games have had the 3D Engines ported to new versions of Windows which allow the game to run smoothly one example is Return to Castle Wolfenstein. In any case the drivers are below also there is a list of compatible graphics cards.
Voodoo 5 5000
The unreleased Voodoo 5 5000 was to be similar to the 5500 but with half of the RAM capacity (32 MB total).
Voodoo 5 5500
The Voodoo 5 5500 comes in three flavors: a universal AGP version (AGP 1/2x, prototypes were made with AGP4x-interface) with full sideband support, PCI, and the Mac Edition, which is only available for PCI, though could run in 66 MHz PCI slots. The Mac Edition has a DVI- and a VGA-A-out, the other versions just have one VGA-out.
The 3Dfx Voodoo 1 was one of the first 3D based graphics card that was affordable for home-based computer systems. By 1996 there was over 100 PC (Windows/DOS) games titles that supported the Voodoo chip sets. Most old Voodoo graphics cards should work with newer versions of Windows. In the case of DOS and Windows 95, XP etc the drivers are below.
